the urban park score that ended up the best in the country is 96% of san franciscans live within a ten-minute walk of a park. think about that. there is no other city in the country that can claim that. we are very proud. that is an honor which celebrates the city's commitment to parks but also the incredible wisdom and vision of our -- those who have come before us in building a parks system so there is a lot to be proud about. a few short announcements looking forward. this friday we are able to celebrate the grand reopening of the sunset recreation center. friday november 16th at 6:00. it will reopen after a $14 million renovation. this was made possible through the 2008 clean and safe neighborhoods fund program. it is another example how our bond dollars are working to make park and recreation dollars better across the city. i was able to take an advance tour of the nearly complete site last week. it is going to amaze. it is really, really spectacular. tomorrow you can get a head start on thanksgiving at the turkey cook-off. a no recipes barred competition between youth and staff
for supervisor? >> san franciscans are incredibly interested in their city government, local politics, and making sure that we remain the most amazing city in the world. i learned that san franciscans during campaign read everything they are sent in the mail. they love to meet the candidates and engage in conversations with them. i learned how important it is to build bridges between different communities, particularly communities of diversity that we have. i was incredibly honored to have been elected in november of 2008. >> where do you place yourself on the political spectrum? >> i consider myself someone who shares the progressive values that many sentences can hold dear. we have been a beacon to the rest of the world region that many sentences skins hold dear. we have been a beacon to the rest of the world for those. >> you are president of the board. describe the role of the opposition and the responsibilities that come with being the president of the board of supervisors. >> as president, i preside over the weekly meetings we have tuesday at 2:00 here in the chamber. i also determine which
tom mazzucco. i am on my second term of the police commission and a native san franciscan. i am a partner in a law firm but prior to doing that i spent 20 years as a prosecutor, 10 as a district attorney here in the city and county of san francisco where i handled domestic violence cases and nienl years as an assistant united states attorney here in the northern district of california where ironically handled domestic violence case in the presidio which isn't the typical jurisdiction matter but more importantly i'm a husband and a father of a daughter and this is important and in light of the current events that have taken place it's important that the two commissions get together to affirm our commitment to combating domestic violence and protecting witnesses and candidly this couldn't be a better time. today i received the san francisco attorney, the magazine from the bar association, and the cover of the magazine is "domestic violence, not a cookie cutter approach" and they interviewed two attorneys and i know both but no prosecution interviewed, no police department involv
for the late evening. i am a third generation native san franciscan. as a native, i have seen our great city go through many changes and i know how difficult it to be people to see change ms. their neighbors. i am here to support polka dot, to make sure that changes are good for our community as a whole. my son graduated from polka dot and was very prepared when he entered school. my son is fourth-generation san franciscan. while growing up in the city with a working mom i was brought to our next door neighbor's house for home daycare. it was a wonderful experience for me to be close to home, in my neighborhood and run by a caring person who had kids of her own. it was also affordable. i know this many concerns have been expressed by neighbors and i'm glad that people have the forum to express their concerns. they are a strictly neighborhood residential street. their current location is small and on a really narrow street. and parking even there was never an issue. the school and parents are very respectful of people's driveways. traffic use -- typically they don't come at one time and the
and in city hall and in the hearts and minds of san franciscans. let me mention ap geny and found an important bank and the inventor what we call the micro credit and helped the city recover from the big earthquake of 1906. guy mo roller who was the founder, established the opera in san francisco, by the way there's an italian directing the opera and laurence fergetty and 93 and good friend of the community. he is the father of the b generations and the guy that started the culture revolution of the 60's and 70's so in many ways italians have made lasting contribution to this city and the silicon valley. there is an important engineer that developed the first micro prosser for intel, so it's a tremendous foundation to celebrate italian culture 2013. also i was reminded by our pastors that san francisco gets its name from an italian man and holly man. it is noted. >> >> for kindness and compassion and generosity and i think these are traits that this city has adopted and made its own traits , so this is not to be under scored, not to be forgotten. what are we going to do in the c

. we want san franciscans to enjoy great art. we would like the theater of naples play with san francisco. it will be200 year of his birth and we want it to be a special moment and the san francisco bay and the other guiding principle is sustainability and also of lifestyle. we are proud to say in a way italy has shaped global life with our consumer goods, fashion, sports car, coffee, also our industrial design, so we will bring for example jewelry from a heritage collection to san francisco. we will have liz tailors jewels exhibited here in the city. we will have of course food -- especially we like the slow food philosophy. we will highlight the achievements in the education system and especiallied connected to the experience of a woman like maria montessori. the third principle is innovation and technology. when i say italy everybody will think of the arts and music. they don't think of technology yet we want to persuade you there are lots of things to be discovered. i was working in the world of energy and there i think we have taken enormous steps in the direction of
to incorporate san franciscans to do the survey. you see what i see here, all the staff is doing. so may i ask for a resume from the staff. if you are not from san francisco, what type of information are they getting about san franciscans about the issue. right off the bat, you don't need to be a rocket scientist. when i saw that colored map showing that you an all of those other areas where other people live who maybe interested in clean energy. but putting a color on a map detrimental to the people who have been adversely impacted for decades. i as an environmentalist, i am not going to keep quiet. we need added outreach to those areas. and the only way that can be done is when the local people knock at the door. and the people that are comfortable with them, answer a number of questions. which i guarantee you that the staff did not do. now if we have some consultant and we pay them millions of dollars, that's fine. provided we have the empirical data from the right areas to do the right thing. i see you just asking questions in general and not going to what type of quality work has been don
to san franciscans, the bay area workers throughout the whole region. the golden state warriors will also do something as significant as making sure that all of the current employees at the arena in oakland are extended jobs on this new warriors arena here in san francisco. that is also of great significance. we've oftentimes said, even in our own negotiations with the niners as they moved out, that we wanted to take care of our workers. and similarly with the warriors coming over here, they want to take care of people who have been loyal to them at the oracle arena. and some of them are right here who have worked many years at oracle as well and i think that builds confidence for you that we're dealing with the right people who make the right decisions concerning your lives. >>> so, we can't say no to jobs. obviously we say yes to job creation, but we also a big yes to quality jobs, jobs that have security, that have been backed with them for many years. that's why there are so many of the employees here today to represent their support and interestses in the way these decisions are bein
in placing san franciscans in this industry and following the mayor is ron conway and followed by jewel us trueus and jose and a student at bay cat and the tech of the advisory committee and rhonda simmons the director of the office of workforce development division in owdad. we're going to hold questions until the close of the program which the speakers will answer those questions and with that mayor lee. >> thank you. good morning everyone and go giants. yeah. [applause] well, let me begin by thanking everybody here. when i first began as mayor i said jobs was the most important thing we could do for people to get and i tell you what less than two years later that is still the most important thing that we can be doing and creating jobs, making people have the opportunity to get them and trained and educated and placing them in the newest areas in our technology industry and when ron conway. ron just arrived and got out of at&t together. we worked together and had a personal agreement if we were as a city were to help technology we were going to have technology help us, so less than

, mayor, for leading the way to let our san franciscans know that the season of giving is also a season of miracles. i think those of us here in this room with you always feel that, oh, my god, that's not enough turkeys for the food bank, for the needy families and that's not enough food for the hungry seniors that come through our meal site at many of our social service agencies. but yet every time, every time around this year thanksgiving and christmas, we find very, very generous donors and check suddenly appear like mayor will be delivering 100 turkes, 150 turkeys to the school for that we are very thankful. mayor, we are celebrating thanksgiving with 3,000 of the very low-income seniors in chinatown. and as of now i think that we got all the turkeys covered. thank you very much. [laughter] >> and the gratifying thing is we have a lot of volunteers this year. we have so many volunteers that we had to put a stop last friday and say, we have no more space to put you. so, i think that people feel that around thanksgiving and christmas is not just a time to spend with our own families,
by pg&e would have pg&e offering to san franciscans an opportunity for 100% renewable product that is greening up their portfolio to using renewable energy credits, so they have placed a proposal before the california puc for -- their agreement. parties are engaged in asking questions, testimony has been filed. the cupuc had scheduled hearings in december for the proposal, but those hearings on hold in order to allow parties to talk further and potentially arrive at a settlement. there really isn't active settlement discussion under way right now. we expect that may happen in january, and if you play out that process we think that maybe july or august of 2013 we will know what shape the program that pg&e has proposed has been authorized by the cupuc. pg&e would then as i understand it from their filings need to go through a solicitation process to hire a third party contractor to perform the program implementation and we're thinking it would probably be a tariffed and ready program by maybe around february of 2014. that's all very tentative at this point because as i say

[applause] >> thank you. thank you mayor lee. thank you warriors. thank you web core hunt and those that will build us and jesse hunt and i would like our community partners to come up. we work together in coalition and when we have the opportunity we would like to do this. charity cultural center -- i saw david. mother jackson, the god mother of bay view hunter's point. dan marcos and bay view and i see florence con and what this is about and why it's historic when we on the community -- we work with workers, communities, folks trying to get on these projects and as the mayor stated and supervisor avalos talked about and local hire is the last thing and typically around good faith and whose faith and it doesn't work this. is mandatory. the warriors are partners in labor. the contractors have submitted to working with us to make local hiring mandatory,
on the electorate? the reason is san franciscans are concerned about the future of their parks. our parks need increased general funding for maintenance and operations. not another capital bond which will build new structures without the funds to manage, maintain and staff them. our parks need to be revered as parkland. not viewed as sites for potential development. our parks need to be held at public assets, not site specific revenue machines. our parks need funding source that does not depend on limiting access for very resources created with the intent that they be made available to everyone. we will continue to urge the management policies back to the core mission of providing the broadest access to parks for everyone. giving all san franciscans a voice and stewarding precious resources for today and the future generations. >> thank you. >> katherine. >> i would like to echo mr. wooding's sentiments, all the people who worked on no on b. we love our parks. we think there are very serious issues that need to be addressed. we always look forward to working with the commission and department
are reflective of those issues and the other issue raised is san franciscans should be doing outreach in this support and i can't support that more than enough because it's always my experience that sometimes we bring in outside forces -- not that we have here, but outside forces that don't know the community, communities of color and speak other languages and in addition to english and those are sensitive issues i think the staff has taken into consideration and that's an important statement to make. i appreciate your comments and i read your letter and i appreciate the comments but i think it's important to keep within the context of how the staff and commission has operated and quite frankly how members of the board of supervisors has operated with the best of intentions because at the end of the day we're accountable to the tax payers and the rate payers of city and county of san francisco. >> thank you president torres. just a clarification on the action item before us if there is one or for the later meet something. >> the sfpuc commission agenda provides for them to discuss an
